monitoring by the tunisian government. there are other suspects that the f.b.i. are both closely following and consulting with partner governments. i think based on my last conversation with director muller, which was just a few days ago. he went to libya. he went to tunisia. heblet that the investigation is proceeding. i know that the f.b.i. has been up on the hill doing classified briefings with certain committees. i don't know about this committee. but i certainly hope that the f.b.i. is able to investigate, identify and hold responsible those who wage this attack against us. and i think that based on their work, they feel that they are pursuing some very positive leads. >> ok. my understanding is the thank you knees the person held in tunisia was released by a judge and that person has been released. so basically we don't really know at this point who did it. >> well, congressman, i confirmed with director muller who was just in tunisia meeting with their high officials that this person is basically under law enforcement surveillance and forbidden to leave tunis. director muller told m
with the prime minister, among others. fbi agents have had a difficult time working on site in benghazi to analyze the crime scene because of security concerns. the fbi is tapping into facebook like this. people can fill out a form on the fbi's website. meanwhile, libyan officials say they are frustrated because they don't control the area where the attack happened. militants do. and those militants are sympathetic with al qaeda. local leaders are not cooperating. withins are also said to be afraid to talk and key police officers terrified of revenge attacks. >> so zain, has u.s. diplomacy overall changed since the benghazi attack? >> you know, it really has, carol. i was speaking to experts who say the security arm at the state department, known as diplomatic security, has always tried to balance diplomacy on one hand and security on the other. to the extent to which, how can you let officials go out and meet people? since benghazi, there's a lot less people-to-people contact and much more emphasis on security. the other thing, too, analysts say before 9/11, the diplomacy was focused o
attacks in kenya and tanzania, the fbi put bin laden on their ten most wanted list. secretary of state madeleine albright escorted home the bodies of 10 of the 12 americans who were killed in those attacks. since 1970, not a year has gone by where there has not been some sort of violent attack against u.s. diplomats and diplomatic facilities around the world. not all of them are deadly, but they happen all the time, year after year after year. and nobody is more aware of that than whoever is the secretary of state at the time. and our secretary of state right now is hillary clinton. who was on capitol hill today to testify about the latest deadly attack on u.s. diplomats. the attack in benghazi. >> benghazi joins a long list of tragedies for our department, for other agencies, and for america. hostages taken in tehran in 1979, our embassy and marine barracks bombed in beirut in 1983, khobar towers in saudi arabia in 1996. our embassies in east africa in 1998. consulate staff murdered in jetta in 2004. the khost attack and many others. i could give you a long list of attacks averted, th
from rota, spain were not sent to benghazi. as a result the f.b.i. could not enter the benghazi consulate for 24 days. that prevented them from doing crucial work on the ground in benghazi that would have helped them get to the bottom of who was responsible for this attack. >> reporter: what remaining questions do you have about the conclusions of the accountability review board, that is a committee headed by admiral mike mullen and former ambassador thomas pickering about mistakes made in benghazi. >> reporter: wong of the recommendone of the questions we have is they say they interviewed 100 witnesses and officials who were involved that night in the benghazi response, but in recent weeks we've spoken to two different members of the cia/grs team srels srels diplomatic service. they say they were not given access to all of those involved in the rescue that night. we also know from some of those who were on the ground in tripoli that night, some of those who were part of the rescue team, that they were told when they took off from trip low to benghazi that there would be, quote,
to the fbi. in the meantime, north dakota was in the low range of it's firearm homicide rate. it has among the loosest gun laws in the country. the vice-president is treated -- traveling to richmond, virginia. he'll be joined by former governor and senator tim kane to discuss the obama administration's efforts to reduce gun violence. can -- tim ak -- kaine was the governor of virginia during the shootings at virginia tech back in 2007. also, there was an announcement yesterday by senator dianne feinstein, banning assault weapons. that is available on our web site at c-span.org. pentagon lifting the ban on women in combat. tom in ohio, what are your thoughts on all this? caller: there were some women suing the pentagon over the lack of being able to get into combat. the requirement for combat -- they are using that to be promoted. the good old boy network, if you do not want women to advance, you require combat and you cannot let them go to combat. i think the timing is curious with a lawsuit being in court now. host: thank you for the call. date on the republican line, from new jersey. cal
socialite's that prompted david petraeus to resign as cia director. that is general john allen. the fbi uncovered messages from the marine general during its investigation of david petraeus last year. he has been cleared. allegations of professional misconduct were not substantiated by the investigation. the secretary news from the obama administration. the u.s. representative -- u.s. trade representative ron kirk will leave the administration by the end of february. the white house confirmed this. his departure was widely expected after he said last year he was planning to leave and return to his native texas. asked representative, he was responsible for developing and recommending american trade policy to the president. other headlines, this from israel. prime minister benjamin netanyahu wins, but it takes a big hit. israel was thrown into political chaos in iraq after and his party suffered a setback in the nation's first elected in four years, but his party did win. he does retain his position. that's the doorpost. another international story. russia is ready with talks -- for talks
of crimes or guilty of anything, but simply people that are somehow peripheral to an investigation. the fbi relies, in the first thing as what is a driver's license, like on television. so what kind of publications can you envision an estate like a worm where 40% of the people are carrying not for federal identification to the fbi director has touched by three times how important the real id act is for federal law enforcement. >> two things with that, and it's been very, very troublesome for us, again, it's hardcoded in the real id act itself that you have to mark a negative card. and a year ago we were two years and i specifically asked at an awards meeting at each is represented, we're having all the unintended consequent of the negative markings on the card, what is your recommendation? and the recommendation i got back was quit marking the card negatively than. which was a little bit stressful because it's hardcoded in real id act itself. and our 80 in delaware said have to abide by the law as it is written. but a lot of our citizens in delaware said okay, other states are not marking t
brought to justice there? >> well i believe, well, i know that the fbi has been briefing some committees. i assume members of staff of this committee are included. i don't know that but i would assume, about the progress of their investigation. i got the most recent update from the director just a few days ago when he returned from north africa. they are following some very promising leads, and putting together cases. they with have to speak to you directly about that in a classified setting but you think what they are trying to determine is how best to respond and i think what the president clearly said is, we will respond. and we will bring those to justice and i don't think anybody should doubt this president at his word. we have some very good examples of that. it may take time but he does not in any way divert attention from the goal of bringing them to justice. >> thank you, madam secretary. the president also said al qaeda has been decimated. and in light of the recent terrorist activities that we continue to see in north africa, around the world, would you characterize that as al
interviewed the people who were there. instead of saying, no we cannot talk to them because an fbi investigation was going on. host: front page. our next call is an independent from ohio. caller: good morning. i have two. . first, there is no doubt in my mind what happened was muddied for political reasons. if you refuse to associate with a government that plays politics when their allies in the balance of decisions, everybody lies, but the question i asked is who gets the worst results. the second is on the kind of language used in the inquiries. the state department dropped the ball on libya. nobody asked a simple direct question, why did you deny repeated requests for more protection. by giving a tirade, they dilute the force of the simple question. the hardest and most useful question to answer is a simple direct one. host: thank you for calling. a couple of facebook comments. we have plenty more time for your postings and phone calls. we do want to spend a couple of minutes with eight journalists talking about another huge story. it started yesterday and will continue today wi
anything with patrick swayze. >> you mean the fbi is going to pay me to serve. [ laughter ] >> woe! >> most heinous. >> stephanie: isn't that how it ends, right? patrick swayze goes surfing and presumably kills himself -- >> well, there he goes again. >> i'm performing tomorrow night at the blue state ball in indianapolis. >> awesome. >> come on down if you are there and freezing. >> stephanie: because you weren't busy enough. >> i have no life. i love you all. >> stephanie: thank you, honey. we'll have tina dupuy next on the "stephanie miller show." ♪ [♪ theme music ♪] >> stephanie: hello tv world. tina dupuy coming up right after the break here. jacki schechner? >> yes. >> stephanie: i always like to do one story a day that makes me feel better about my pathetic love life. woman choked man for hogging blanket. [ laughter ] >> stephanie: he was trying to get more of the blanket, as men do. she called police, and was highly intoxicated however. >> that warrens a 911 call. he also won't get me a glass of water. >> stephanie: all right. here she is my bff, jacki
. will it happens the assault weapons ban. >> no, here is the reason why. it was not renewed in 2004. the fbi and law enforcement officers saying this did not work. what we know is that since the lifting of that ban you've seen crime go down. people, many times, bill, what ends up happening, you get the gun-free zones and you get guns in the hand of criminals and you're right, there's a lot of evil in this world but the assault weapons ban is not the way to fix it. bill: okay. on the assault, let me come back to fixing that in a moment. what about a background check? could that pass? >> well, background checks already are happening and, even, you know, some people will say, there's a gun show loophole but you know what? the most of the your vendors at the gun shows are licensed vendors. they are already doing those background checks there is a very small percentage, i think it is about four or 5% of the guns that are transferred into individual to individual without background checks. bill: so much has been proposed publicly. does any of that pass now in your view? >> i don't think you're goi
threatened and actually scared for her life. that's why she reached out to a friend in the f.b.i and she's telling her side of the story. she didn't want to hurt anybody. general allen, although the investigation delayed his promotion, i do think it's important and caused for embarrassment and he's been cleared. all the earlier reports about hundreds of e-mail are not true. >> gretchen: but this is a case of what happens when a story goes out there and then does a retraction get as much attention as the actual story? i mean, remember, it was said 30,000 e-mails. people were scratching their heads like and they're make accusations saying how could he manage afghanistan and it turns out he wasn't. can you regain your reputation after something like that? i think it's a shame that this happened to this great general who apparently actually was doing his job in afghanistan. >> steve: he was. and the inspector general said they have cleared him of any wrongdoing. however, they were able to figure out that it was this ball la broadwell sending the e-mail she was having the affair with david pe
